CAMPSITES AT CAMP EARTH CONNECTION

Camp Earth Connection offers THREE PRIVATE CAMPSITES for campers who bring their own tents:

THE RABBIT HOLE: This site is tucked in the forest about 50 feet from main camp.  It’s a short walk from the “unloading area” and an excellent choice for families with young children or anyone who prefer’s not to walk very far to their site.  It can fit one 2-4 person tent or if you prefer, you can rent one of our (1-2 person tree tents) and we will have it all set up for you.  The site has a large fire pit with a heavy grill and a picnic table.  This is a well loved site, so you may want to book it early.

WHITE PINE FOREST SITE (Wilderness Site):  A short walk through the main camp field, and then a 100 foot walk into the forest there is a large White Pine tree which marks this campsite.  This site can have one 2-4 person tent or two smaller tents.  It has a portable fire pit.  This site is also about 100 feet from the dirt road that leads to the camp.

RING OF FIRE CAMPSITE (Primitive Site): A 5 minute walk down the hill leads you to our large fire circle, where you can set up your tents and have a beautiful view of the stars.  It is surrounded by forest and a short walk to the wildlife pond.   A latrine is also a short distance from the site.   It is a hilly site, so a bit challenging to find a totally level spot.  A great site for tree tents (available to rent.). This site can have a maximum of 6 people or three 2 person tents or 1 or 2 larger tents.

TREE TENT CAMPSITES

TREE TENTS: Tent Camping just got a little more exciting this summer.  Try out one of our two Tree Tent sites.  These tents enable the camper to avoid the hard damp ground, yet give more space than a simple Hammock.  Each tent can sleep up to two people.

Tree Tent – Main Camp Site:  This site can have up to 3 tree tents.  It is  few minutes walk from main camp.  It is located close to a water spigot, and has a large fire pit with a grill and a picnic table.   There is a latrine a short walk away.   Each tent sleeps 1 or 2 people.  This site can have up to three tents or 6 campers.

Tree Tent – Primitive Camp Site:  This site is for the more experienced camper who can camp with just the basics of a tent and a small fire pit.  It is a 5 minute hike from the parking area, located privately by an inlet stream that flows into the wildlife pond.  It is a bit more secluded from other campsites and a bit further away from main camp and all the amenities (bathrooms, shower-house, etc.). There is a single person and a double tree tent available for this site with a maximum of 3 campers.
